There are lots of comedy couplings on the air, but some of them should think about breaking up.

May episode of Bones to feature crossover with another popular Fox property, but you'll never guess which one.
Mar 20, 2009
A Bones crossover you have to read to believe

Television producers will do crazy things for ratings, particularly when it's time to gear up for the end of a show's season. Characters perish, guest stars drop in, and sexual tension thickens to a soupy mess. But the hardest thing to pull off is the crossover--inviting one show into the universe of another.

Owners of rights to "When You Wish Upon a Star" sue Fox, Cartoon Network for parody featuring anti-Semitic lyrics.

Fox sued over Family Guy

Fox's Family Guy is both loved and hated for its in-your-face approach to comedy. Almost no group is spared the ribbing from creator Seth McFarlane and his team of writers, which is incredibly offensive to some and downright hilarious to others.

The latest from the former comes from Bourne Co., a music publishing house that owns the US copyright to the Disney classic "When You Wish Upon a Star." The company is suing Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., Fox Broadcasting Co., and the Cartoon Network for copyright infringement stemming from an episode of Family Guy, according to the Associated Press.

The suit alleges that in the 2003 episode "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein," a parody of the song "When You Wish Upon a Star" is sung by animated patriarch and buffoon Peter Griffin with anti-Semitic lyrics. Further details of the lawsuit have not yet been released.

The song ...

Comedian-magician claims Fox's cartoon stole his act for use in the Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story.

Family Guy sued... again

Though it would initially appear impossible, apparently Jesus Christ and Carlos Mencia have something in common--they both may steal material from others...at least according to Family Guy.

In the direct-to-DVD feature Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, Fox's Family Guy portrayed the sandaled one as having abilities that "may have been exaggerated a bit." In one scene, Jesus is shown doing a goofy routine involving hand gestures and singing a simple tune.

While that may just be enough to send the deeply religious into a conniption fit, it was certainly more than enough for one magician to file a lawsuit. Art Metrano, who works as a comedian, actor, and magician, has sued 20th Century Fox Film Corporation, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane (whose name is misspelled on legal documents (pdf file) acquired by TMZ.com), and collaborators Steve Callaghan and Alex Borstein.

Metrano claims that the act that the ...

Fox will continue to produce hit animated comedy without striking Seth MacFarlane; showrunner calls it "a colossal dick move."

Family Guy moving forward without creator
tv_StrikeSource2.jpg

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane isn't your typical showrunner--he's much, much more. The outspoken producer is the lifeblood of the animated hit as he oversees its creation, writes episodes, and provides voices for several of the main characters, including Peter, Brian, Stewie, and Glen "Ohhhhhh yeah!" Quagmire.

But now the Family is moving on without its patriarch. 20th Century Fox Television is proceeding with production of the hit show while Seth MacFarlane walks the picket lines of the Writers Guild of America strike.

Last week, MacFarlane told Variety that only one new episode of Family Guy was ready to go, and that several others were close to completion. However, he said that while the strike was ongoing, he wouldn't perform any of his duties (writing or nonwriting) on the show and that Fox would have to finish the episodes without him--something he jokingly said would ...

Fox working on spin-off of popular animated show featuring Peter Griffin's neighbor.

Family Guy's Cleveland going off on his own

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane must have felt vindicated when Fox resurrected his animated show in 2005 after initially giving it a premature heave-ho. After seeing DVD sales of Family Guy take off, the network gave the series a second shot. And it's glad it did; Family Guy is one of the anchors of Fox's block of animated programming.

Now it appears that Fox wants even more Family Guy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show is getting its own spin-off featuring Cleveland Brown, one Peter Griffin's drinking buddies and neighbors. Cleveland also played the role of R2-D2 in Family Guy's extended Star Wars spoof, Blue Harvest.

MacFarlane, Mike Henry (who voices Cleveland), and Rich Appel (executive producer of American Dad) are currently writing episodes of the series, which had a working title of Cleveland.

The show, if it makes it to air, would be a ...

Meg Griffin & Others
Cleveland/Herbert/Performance Artist/Greased-Up Deaf Guy (and various)

Sick, twisted, politically incorrect and freakin' sweet. The animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Peter and Lois have three kids - the youngest is a brilliant, sadistic baby bent on killing his mother and world domination. Chris, like his father, is obese, has a low IQ and no common sense. Meg desperately tries to be part of the popular crowd, and is coldly rebuffed. Their talking dog Brian keeps baby Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting out his own life issues. After being canceled in 2002, having an outstanding performance in DVD sales and syndication ratings that beat late-night talk shows, its cult status reached great heights. As a result, the series was added back to the FOX Summer 2005 line-up. Family Guy returned to the small screen with new episodes on Sunday, May 1st, 2005. A DVD Movie was released in September of 2005. Family Guy has won 3 Emmy awards and 3 Annie awards.
